1. Domestic Production
Additional production of the all-new Mazda2 (known as the Mazda Demio in Japan) bound for Europe and increased production of the Mazda6 (Atenza), CX-7 and MX-5 (Roadster), among other models, led to a 20.3% rise in total domestic production compared to January 2007.

2. Overseas production
Although production of the Mazda6, Mazda3, Tribute and other models was healthy, total overseas production in January 2008 was down 11.0% year-on-year due to the end of production of Familia and Premacy models in China since FAW established itself as an independent brand.
